May I ask you to provide more info on what happened?
Maybe you can share some screenshots with your download button missing, where you expected it.
Thanks for your update!
Now I understand the problem. So, the answer is yes, you have limited functionality, not because of free usage, but because you are not a user of MLOps which enables this tab and a lot more on the model deployment side.
If you need to get predictions, then open deployment, go to the "Predictions" tab, and follow the instructions there.
To become a full MLOps user one needs to buy the MLOps package.
